Pregnant with Second child - weight gain?

Hi, I'm pregnant with my second child. I never lost all my weight from my first, but I'm shocked at how fast I'm getting bigger around my waist. I haven't even had my doctors appointment yet, and I'm guessing I'm about 6 or 7 weeks pregnant right now. Is it normal to already feel bigger this early?? With my first, I don't remember getting any bigger until about 12 weeks!

  • I only gained 14 lbs with each. I wore maternity clothes with my first but wore my regular clothes throughout my second pregnancy.

  • I showed FAST with my second, but I didn't gain any more weight with him than I did with my first. It's because the springs have already been sprung, LOL.
